Nestled next to the Thames path in the lovely village of Sonning on Thames is Coppa Club – a new open plan restaurant with a nod to art deco in its styling and an all-day, Italian-inspired menu.
The bar, adorned with clusters of kilner jar lights, separates the stylish restaurant with a more comfortable lounge area. After a long walk it’s the perfect spot to cosy up and collapse on the huge velvet and leather Chesterfield sofas and enjoy hot chocolates in front of the open fire.
There’s also a rather lovely three course children’s menu with dishes such as deep fried squid, penne, pizza, steak and chicken. The whole place is really family friendly – huge folding glass doors open onto a huge patio and lawn on the banks of the River Thames, great for kids to run about on.
Our favourite bit about Coppa Club was the awesome breakfast menu which is served from 6.30-11.30am through the week. Weekend brunch is open to non-residents and includes a full English breakfast called ‘the works’ served on an iron skillet, porridge, smoked haddock kedgeree and our favourite – the pancake stack, with pancakes that were deliciously light and fluffy.
The fab thing about Coppa Club is that it has rooms next door in the Great House making it a perfect family escape as the large rooms have sofa beds in. Just take your wellies and empty bellies!
